Post poly lower control arm bushings

ok, i havent found anyone to answer this yet, so im resorting to asking the all powerful gods of wisdom and knowledge. (hey, a little gratuitous butt kissing never hurt anyone....)

ive put a full poly kit from energy suspension under the front of my duster. did it exactly as the directions said to, so i know that part is right. also, ive checked the seating of my torsion bars, the tightness of all the bolts, everything i could think of to check. it all checks out fine. the problem is this:
theres about 1/2 to 1 inch if space in the lower control arm bushing. it's not slop, its lateral movement, like where the big *** bolt goes from the center of the bushing through the k-frame, and the other end of the bushing where it mounts into the lower control arm. the big bolts tight, but the bushing "head" isnt seated against both parts of the suspension piece. is got space.
its doing this on both sides, and it almost kind of worries me. id like to know if its safe, or if i should be worried. also, what could cause it? ive checked everything i can think of. so you guys tell me if this is normal or not.
